Cardigan's Winter Sports Awards 2020

Winter Sports Awards

The winter season has already come to a close, but not before the Cardigan community gathered to celebrate the student-athletes who worked hard and went above and beyond. Many of the boys improved their skills and fitness as well as their knowledge of the game, while others learned what it takes to lead their teammates and stay focussed, even when the score isn’t in Cardigan’s favor. The Winter Sports Awards Assembly is a chance to celebrate those that developed as players as well as those who made a difference to their teammates and coaches.

The best part of the Assembly, however, is hearing from the boys on each team who share their summaries and memories from the winter season. From their adventures on the road to the final intense moments of a close game to the encouraging support of the coaches, the individual speakers share the impact their athletic experiences have had on them.  

The Sports Awards are also a chance to recognize the important work of the Captains Council, the group of students who work closely with Mr. Frost all season to make sure the practices and games go smoothly and that the code of ethics and conduct is respected by all.
